Jem necks

Hi folks... this has probably been asked before, but how is the other Jem necks compared to the 7dbk? I think it's a bit to thin for my hand.. And I just wonder how the other necks are?

Re: Jem necks

I have to say that I prefer the older, thicker jem necks. I greatly prefer my FP neck to any wizard 2s that I have. Even preferred it to a 7VWH as well. When I just played thin necks I loved them, but as I have a couple of axes that are a bit thicker, I find that not only are they more comfortable, but easier to play faster.

Talking Re: Jem necks

I have a 7vwh and a 777dy, the 777dy feels smaller, feels awsome. The 7vwh seems to be a little more fat than the 777, but it has a - solid- feel to it. Also I run 10-52's on my guitars, so they feel kind of "tight" on the string tension. IMO the tone is better with the heavier strings. I havn't had any experinece with the UV's, but am in the market for one now, definateley a wider neck. Looking for a 7PWH.slobber,slobber,slobber. It's all relative to what's comfortable to your hands, if it hurt's, either practice more, or maybe switch to a smaller neck. They're all GOOD!
